You pretty much have to go to the Acropolis if you're in Athens. It's not like you need reviews to tell you this.

    The Erechtheion

    0.06 mi from Acropolis
    8 reviews

    Like all the structures on the Acropolis, it seems to be in a constant cycle of restoration. Very interesting design but even more fascinating history - I would recommend visiting this one specifically with someone who knows its story (or a good guide book).

    You can see findings of the archaeological site of the Acropolis of Athens. The museum was built to house every artifact found on the rock and on its feet, from the Greek Bronze Age to Roman and Byzantine Greece. It is located near the Acropolis. You can't miss it if you are interested in being informed about Ancient Greece.

    New Acropolis Museum

    0.27 mi from Acropolis
    36 reviews

    One of the best museums of Greece, the Acropolis Museum hosts great exhibits from the Acropolis. Tip: visit first the Museum and then the Acropolis, so as to find out first what you will see afterwards. The Acropolis Museum is about 15 minutes away from "the Blue House" (by Metro).

    Temple of Olympian Zeus

    37 reviews

    A "must visit" place of Athens. It's story is quite interesting but the most impressive is the size of the temple. You won't be able to believe how could people living thousands years ago could ever build something like this!

    Panathenaic Stadium

    33 reviews

    The Panathenaic Stadium or Panathinaiko was another stop on the Athen tour. We got off the bus for long enough to admire from one end that athletic stadium that hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Reconstructed from the remains of an ancient Greek stadium, the Panathenaic is the only major stadium in the world built entirely of white ...

    Visiting just for the changing of the guards is worth it, but there is so much more here. In a lot of ways it feels like the heart of the city.

    Fittingly located at the front of the parliament building, the tomb is always well visited. Be sure to come in time for the very entertaining changing of the guard.

    Benaki Museum

    11 reviews

    This museum is absolutely underrated and often overlooked. It is the most modern museum with excellent exhibitions that are constantly changing. It is also at the entrance to Kolonaki where the chic fashionistas congregate. I love the vibe and the staff is knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

    We also didn't get to go inside the Parliament building, but we did get a chance to see the guards marching in front of Parliament. Definitely something that should be on your to-do list for Athens.

    I think we were just on the outskirts of the Plaka and didn't go exploring very much of it, there are some interesting shops and restaurants in this area of Athens.

    You can't visit Plaka and the Acropolis without also seeing the Agora! It is the heart of the city, the reason to fall in love with Athens and my favorite place to be.
